    Summary

    Every superhero has a sidekick. A best friend. A lover. An innocent bystander who gets caught up in the chaos. Maybe they become superheroes themselves. Maybe they just learn to deal with their superhero's crap.

    Whatever the case, there's one thing they need: people who understand what they're going through.

    Summary

    “Look, I know I’m not exactly the church on Sunday type,” Tony breathed. “And maybe if I ever got in a confessional, it’d take the better part of a day to get through the whole list.” He bent at the waist, all too conscious of the fact that the remaining armor was weighing him down. One hand found a rock- a pretty half-assed weapon, sure, but better than nothing if it came to that. And of course it was going to come to that. That was how his life worked. “But if any god’s out there listening right now, it would be one hell of a chance to make me a believer.”

    A response came with startling immediacy, a whisper so near to his ear that he could feel the warm breath of the speaker. “Now, tell me. Is that an official prayer?” The voice was low and soft like dark silk, and if anything could have made this moment worse, it was recognizing who that voice belonged to- and then having his brain catch up and recognize who that voice belonged to. He and the universe, Tony Stark told himself, would have to have a little heart-to-heart about expectations.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    mythology!Loki is the best Loki
    Chapter 5 has the most wonderful exchanges between Bruce and Tony. Like, this is the version of their friendship that I LOVE!

    The analogies and descriptions herein are, like, on par with Douglas Adams.
    Like, holy shit, THIS is how you explain the similarity between a raven and a writing desk.
    Examples:
    pieces of his armor lying across the better part of a city block like the crumpled aluminum over those old stove-top popcorn bags that broke open at a touch.
    [He] reached through a slice in the air in the same way someone would check their pocket.
    [He appeared,] flickering into view like that one unreliable bulb on the Christmas tree every year.
    He did not fade from view but simply went, like a computer screen in a power outage
    It was the kind of thought you don't want to have, because it hangs a left past terrible, drives straight through common sense, and parks itself in inappropriately funny.
    *sings* and many more! */sings*

    Summary

    With Voldemort defeated and Harry turning seventeen, the elder Weasley boys decide to give him a chance to be a normal teenager for a while; namely, by buying him a ticket to Malibu, California. But of course, Harry Potter can never do anything normally. Especially not once he meets Tony Stark in a club, and begins a holiday romance that leaves him with more than just memories.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    You know how in fic there'll be that line like "he was sitting there marveling at how happy he was to have his little found family there with him" and then you're like 'oh, shit! The Fire Nation is about to attack! Noooooo!!!' because we are used to / know that fic authors tend to (temporarily) torture the characters??
    Yeah, this doESN'T HAVE THAT.
    Sure, Harry is left pining for a while and then lotsa chapters after that the Chitauri show up and the Battle of Manhattan happens, but Harry and Tony get back together and the BoM ends better than in canon (see tag: Coulson Lives).

    [[The mpreg is first mentioned in chapter 9 and is a primary focus until chapter 12. Skip to chapter 13 or 14 to meet the cute kid and see how Harry is at parenting. For the rest of the story, any mention is mostly Harry being like 'yes, I was pregnant. Moving on; do we want pizza for dinner or Chinese?' ]]
